How to generate Barcode Labels in Sortly for standard printers on web and mobile

If you are a Sortly Ultra user, you can generate beautiful barcode labels that are connected to any of your items in Sortly in a few clicks. They can be created in a variety of sizes with different attributes available to include depending on the size you select.

If you are not a Sortly Ultra user but would like to upgrade to take advantage of this feature, please click here.

Please note: If you are printing barcodes, you will need to do so from a laser printer.  You can find recommended laser printers here although this is not an exhaustive list.

See steps to create Sortly barcode labels on Desktop in screenshots below

Step 1: Select single or multiple items/folders and then tap on the Generate Label button 


Once you indicate you want to "Create Label," you will be taken to the steps where you pick the paper size and label size.


Step 2: Select paper size

Note: Sortly will recommend the correct Avery label sheets based on your selections for paper size and label size. You can purchase the blank (pre cut) label sticker sheet through Amazon by clicking on the link (if needed). 


Step 3: Select label size

Please note: For printing barcodes on standard laser printers, you will only be able to print in the medium or small label size.


Unlike QR code generation for printers, you will not be able to include additional item details, item photos, company logo, or additional notes with your barcodes.

Step 4: Once you've selected your paper size and label size, please click "Next"

Step 5: Select from the printing options presented on the next page


Label quantity: Print multiples of the same labels

Label start position: If you have a partially used sheet of labels, select where you'd like printing to begin to reduce label waste.

Printing Instructions: Check whether you'd like to have a sheet with label instructions generate within the PDF.

Send copy to email: We recommend having a copy of the PDF you generate sent to your email for future printing needs.

Step 10: Click "Generate Labels" and a PDF of your labels will be created and downloaded so that you can print the barcode labels on your standard laser printer based on the attributes you've selected.
